17 October 2016
Zytronic plc (the "Company")
The Board is pleased to provide the following pre-close statement ahead of announcement of the Group's results for the year ended 30 September 2016, which is expected to take place in December 2016.
The second half of the year has shown a continuing trend to that reported in the first half, with touch product revenues increasing relative to both traditional products and year on year.
Reported profit before tax for the full year will reflect the impact of a c. £0.9m non-cash provision arising from the Group's foreign exchange policy; however, the Group's underlying profit (before this non-cash item) is expected to be significantly ahead of last year and at least in line with market expectations.
Further information will be provided in the full-year results announcement.
